Masking in Photoshop with Ed Freeman (One session)
- September 7, 2019
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Simply put, masking is the heart and soul of Photoshop. Masking allows you to make incredibly subtle and complex selections with ease, which in turn opens up a world of image correction, retouching and compositing.
One of the principle functions of Photoshop is to adjust images. Adjustments are relatively easy to learn; knowing where and how to apply them is a function of masking. Compositing is a technique that is basic to Photoshop; the way into the world of compositing is masking. Masking does nothing in itself, but it makes everything else possible.
We’ll spend class time working with a variety of pictures and masking techniques. Students should come away with a whole new understanding of the near-limitless power and possibilities of Photoshop.
This course will be taught in LACP’s digital lab. Students will have their own workstation equipped with a 27-inch iMac computer loaded with Photoshop CC. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed. Although participants will be learning using Photoshop CC, the skills taught are cross-platform to earlier versions of Photoshop.
Dates: Saturday, September 7, 10 am – 6 pm
Enrollment Limit: 10 students
Skill/Experience Level: Students should be comfortable working with the Macintosh OS X operating system and have basic Photoshop experience.
